From a London Pub to Mine Finder ~Silver Miller Mines

From a London Pub to Mine Finder ~Silver Miller Mines

by Gladys (Miller) Wilcox

Adding another chapter to the mining history of the area around Cobalt, Ontario, this book brings alive again the unexpected development of Silver Miller and its associated mines in the mid-twentieth century. Prime mover in this story is Harry Miller, whose persistence in his quest for ore-bearing veins which he believed to be there, brought about the amazing recovery of the slumbering Cobalt Mining Camp and its continuance for another twenty years.

Gladys Wilcox, daughter of Harry and Lilian Miller,author Gladys Wilcox has lived in the area most of her life. She attended Silver Centre Public School and Cobalt High School, graduating in 1942. Gladys has two sons and four grandchildren. Always interested in local affairs she is presently: Treasurer of Temiskaming Writers'Guild, a Director of Cobalt Historical Society, Chairman of the Cobalt Public Library Board, a Member of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 44, and Secretary of the Bunker Military Museum.
